Every DUI case involves the criminal charges of driving under the influence, and the loss of your driver’s license. This two part type of case is different from most criminal matters, and deserves specialized attention in order to get a good result. If you have been arrested and charged with DUI before, it should come as no surprise that with each new case against you, your defense has to be stronger and more focused on what matters most. For the majority of DUI defendants, the two most important things are to stay out of jail and to stay on the road. Experience counts when you are facing any type of case, but with a subsequent DUI it is wise to seek counsel that concentrates their efforts in this type of case. With the help of a seasoned DUI defense attorney, you can have a good outcome for first time and even subsequent offender cases.
If you have had more than one DUI case filed against you, here are some things to know about how to save your driver’s license. The three ways that work most often in repeat offender cases are:
- Going to DUI school or a drug/alcohol treatment program. It is not uncommon to be ordered to attend and successfully complete these types of courses with subsequent cases, and often times this requirement is made as part of what you must do in order to get a hardship license to drive.
- It is likely that you will be placed under the supervision of the Special Supervision Services program. The supervision will last as long as your license is revoked, and you will have to do the things asked of you during this time in order to get a good recommendation.
- If you obtain a favorable recommendation from the Special Supervision Services staff assigned to your case, you will have a better shot at getting a hardship license and maintaining at least a limited right to drive.
Meeting these three requirements can be difficult, and it takes a lot of hard work. But with our help, you can be successful in your request for a hardship license.
